Rated 3 out of 5 by lizyb Not for me
Could be me and not the dress but l couldnt get it on - couldnt get both arms through , tried stepping into it instead but still couldnt it up - no stretch in waistband. It is the same size as other dresses l have from this range that fit ok.so obviously going back

Rated 5 out of 5 by C0RNISHMAID Yes, my friends, I have legs!!
This wonderful dress encouraged me to finally get my legs out, having only worn jeans / trousers / leggings for over 25 years! I ordered it (spearmint) on a whim as it looked so gorgeous on TV but, even then, privately thought I'd be sending it back. No way! The fit is perfect. The skirt length, sleeve length and neckline are all just right. The quality of the fabric and the manufacture is without fault. I have received many, many compliments when wearing this super dress and will be ordering at least one other colour. 10/10

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoubleH Love the style...but
I have had my eye on this dress for some time and finally took the plunge when more colours came in. I ordered the teal colour, although I'm pretty sure the one that arrived was the spearmint - it's definitely the greeny one. I don't really mind either way and won't be sending it back, but I do think this issue needs to be checked at the warehouse.
Colour aside, I love everything about the dress - the style, the fit, the length, the sleeves, the print - except for the O So Slim lining, which is driving me crazy! It simply does not stay in place when I walk. It starts out sitting just above my knee, but after a short walk to the local shops had ridden up to just under my bottom. I have heard of other customers cutting the lining out and I think I'm going to join them. The dress fabric is thick enough not to need an underskirt for modesty reasons and the fit and flare shape means I don't really feel the need for a shaper anyway.
I wholeheartedly agree with other reviewers that it's a lovely, flattering dress and am tempted to buy at least one more colour, but please Ouida can we have a version of this dress without the lining?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sexybexy Uber Sexy!
This is an uber sexy dress! It is a bit tricky to put on as rolling down the inner tube that is the O So Slim' is quite an art. But once you have done that and adjusted your "girls" to maximum effect: Wow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximokit Gorgeous vintage style dress
Ordered this on a whim and so glad I did. It's beautiful and made me feel like a million dollars. I teamed it with some vintage seamed stocking and put my hair in a chignon and went out to a very posh Mayfair restaurant and I felt amazing. Covers a multitude of sins and so flattering. My man kept taking photos of me in it as it was so lovely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Smarty Pretty dress but smelt bad
This was a lovely dress (though I'm 5'9" & it only came to my knee - please can RN do some longer lengths?) but it smelt awful when I opened the bag. It was a sort of musty, chemical smell. It seemed to be coming from the dress rather than the lining, so I think it was something the fabric has been treated with. It might wash out but I'm not taking the chance & sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missmoneypenny21 Very flattering dress
This is such a flattering dress in every way. Really lovely. One word of warning, definitely a cold wash on a very short cycle or hand wash as I found the dress I ordered, in navy/white lost some colour although this was slight, the white spots were not as white after one wash which was a 30 degree delicates cycle. I like it so much I have ordered another.
